They both look like "cool" spots. And quiet. Maybe a leaf rustling softly. Shade, glorious shade. I hope you find some shade and serenity today.

It is amazing what you can hear when you sit very still in peaceful serenity and just "listen".

I can tell this is a blessed place, where wounded souls can come for healing.

When the agitation and inner disturbances calm, it is only then that we can hear our heart singing together with the soothing sounds of nature creating a symphony.
Beauty at its best here!!

I just adore Monet's Garden. This card brings back such lovely memories. I wish I hadn't sent all my cards to other people.

How beautiful and tranquil. I wish I had a spot like that close by so I could escape to it once in awhile.

Beautiful moments of verdant delight. I loved seeing the bridge over the pond at Giverny. I had only seen the painting, never the real garden. Thank you for that.

I'm having the interior of my house painted (chaos) but in packing up books, I ran across Ram Dass's Be Here Now. When I read your haiku and saw your serenity photos, it affirmed my basic belief in be here now, even when in chaos.

Lovely images and Haiku as well.:)
